Ron Paul indeed Out-Foxed (for now): The Swamp

The Swamp

by Jason George

Fergus Cullen, chairman of the New Hampshire State Republican Committee, confirmed Sunday evening to the Tribune that, yes, there will be a televised Fox News presidential candidate forum on Jan. 6, and yes, Rep. Ron Paul was not invited when the other candidates were a week or so ago.

"My understanding is that five candidates to that point had been offered spots but the event is still coming together," Cullen said.

The candidates invited to the forum/debate – whatever you want to call it – will be Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sen. John McCain, Gov. Mitt Romney and Sen. Fred Thompson.

Cullen said the event, which is set to take place two days before the New Hampshire primary, will be held in the afternoon or evening at St. Anselm College in Goffstown, N.H. When asked if Fox News, which is co-sponsoring the debate with the NH party, planned to invite Paul later, Cullen said he didn't know.

"It's really premature. Just the other day candidates started to accept invitations."

On Saturday, Paul called Fox News "scared of me." They "don't want my message to get out, but it will," according to The Boston Globe's Primary Source blog.

"They are propagandists for this war and I challenge them on the notion that they are conservative."

On Sunday night, Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said the campaign remains angry, and in the dark.

"We have not heard anything else today," he said. "[Fox] continues to ignore our calls."

Let's just re-name it the "Pro-Iraq War Forum", leave Dr. Paul off the list of invited, and move on.


NBC nightly news fails to mention Ron Paul in tonights newscast as well as many of the other sub #1 and #2 candidates

So the major media is still ignoring him
Go Ron go
From a liberal Democrat voting for Ron Paul


Jason and the Baltimore Sun,
Thank you for your continued work to expose the blatant hypocrisy and manipulation of the American election by FOX News. Now the question is will this make the front page of the actual paper or just be relegated to a blog? I would think if this happened to Hillary all of the papers and newscasts would have this running. I hope you will keep surprising me, since I have to tell you I have never been a fan of the Sun. P.S.
Sincerely,
A Ron Paul supporter in Harford County


Fox news is deliberately shielding the truth. I say boycott FOX NEWS!!!


Fox is doing a great DIS-Service to the American people by excluding Ron Paul. I don't think the Lame Stream Media understands exactly how much popularity Ron Paul really has, and how much his ideas are resonating with Americans. The American people aren't stupid, and we understand the dire situation our country is headed in. Especially the economic crisis we are going to suffer. The Dollar is declining in value week after week, U.S. imperialism goes unchecked at the expense of our Republic, and we middle class Americans are overtaxed, and over-regulated.

We The People are not going to let a Lame media stand in the way of progress and restoring The Constitution. Ron Paul is the only candidate offering REAL solutions to REAL problems. Ron Paul has my vote.


And once again we're shown that our democracy is nothing more than an illusion.


I that: The "Pro-Iraq War" Forum.
Thanks for the perspective.


I am not sure why Fox would do that, it makes me wonder. I think its time to vote for the Press's least favorite candidate and that would be Ron Paul.


Thanks for spreading the word. Fox News, Fair and Balanced...whatever. Check out their stock price over the next week. it's going down folks. It is a free market after all!!

Go Ron Paul!!


I like that: The "Pro-Iraq War" Forum.
Thanks for the perspective.


No worries from this Ron Paul supporter. All of these "debates" or forums or whatever you want to call them simply remind me how far the Republican Party has strayed from its roots. Dr. Paul's consistent record of honesty and integrity would only be insulted by this ridiculous exchange. For months, Dr. Paul and his supporters have been minimized and marginalized, but Fox News will look pretty silly when half the candidates in its forum of "leaders" turn out to have been beaten by Dr. Paul in Iowa. Go Ron Go!


If Fox News wants to exclude Dr. Paul, I want to vote for him!


Faux News - go back and see how Chris Wallace, Sean Hannity, and Bill Oreilly- have treated Dr. Paul- shameful.

We the People need to boycott Faux News advertisers- no company should profit supporting pro-war propaganda.


Interesting how historically we revere figures who stand for freedom and liberty. Then when one comes along our society has a hard time recognizing him for what he is. This forum/debate is proof that we are not as free as we think we are. God bless Ron Paul.


Everytime they try to pull this on Ron Paul they prove to more and more Americans that Dr. Paul is right.

Please PLEASE babyboomers... the best Revolution lrgacy you could give to Gen X, Y, Next... is the Ron Paul rEVOLution of small government intervention, a new taxation system, and continued privacy and gun rights. No National ID.

Help us.

Fox Failure To Operate in Public Interest Take action Link http://ronpaul2008.freewebspace.com/index.html


I have emailed my disgust with this decision to Fox News. I will no longer be one of its viewers and I will not support its sponsors or advertisers. I would also encourage anyone who owns News Corp. stock (NWS) to sell it immediately and hit them where it hurts. As an American, I am ashamed of our media. How can someone who speaks the truth, has integrity and then raises 19 million dollars be excluded and shunned from a debate? Pathetic.


All of this is to be expected. Anyone that is surprised does not understand what Ron Paul has been saying. If this is a surprise to anyone in the Paul campaign, then I would suggest they evaluate their strategy. This doesn't get easier, it gets tougher if Ron Paul gets more attention. The objective at the top of the list is to have Ron Paul get elected President. This is not simple and it is not easy and it's not going to get done by allowing the objective to be herded by the status quo. This is the real deal, serious, landing on the beach serious. It is doable though and as an old guy impressed with all that has been done. Understand what is at risk to the entrenched otherside though and all of what lies ahead should be expected and planned to be countered.


Hey even pakistan is saying Ron Paul is right. WE THE PEOPLE cannot and do trust Fox news. That's nothing new. We know they are out here for entertainment purposes and that what they say is usually just the opposite. All you gotta do is confirm it elsewhere. Here's what Benezir Bhutto says : http://www.hnn.us/articles/45967.html


Let Fox know what you think where it counts - in their wallet.

http://messages.finance.yahoo.com/mb/NWS


Ron Paul is a racist and Fox News is a GOP propaganda channel, I would think they would both like each other since they have so much in common, I guess not.


Fox News does not care what the American people want and think. They represent a version of fascism, a network trying to keep the American voice of liberty and freedom quieted. We will not stay quiet, they will not stop us. They can either join with the revolution or remain with their status quo. It will not hurt us, it will hurt their network. It is their decision to be defeated.


All of this is going to bite the Republican Party int its butt come the general election. Do they not think Paul supporters are going to vote for whoever is nominated after Paul is given the shaft during the primaries? Paul's supporters are going to stay home or write in Paul's name and Hillary will end up winning. The GOP is a joke.


Fox News, the promoter of fighting for democracy abroad, decides to ignore Ron Paul and not invite him to a forum in a state in which he is beating Fred Thompson in the majority of the polls. Yet we see Fred Thompson get the invite and Ron Paul does not. What happened to Fox News' slogan "You Decide 2008". Obviously that is just a lie, like most of the "news" spat out from this "news network". What a joke and a disgrace.

I sold my Fox shares on Friday when this story broke. I then donated another $100.00 to Ron Paul's campaign.

It took a 2 minute call to my broker.

Hit them where it hurts.

Good Riddance Fox "News"!


The Australian multi-billionaire media owner Rupert Murdoch is doing what he can to inluence and manipulate the United States Presidential election of 2008.


I've already emailed Fox News and I'm in the process of contacting their corporate sponsors to let them know I will be boycotting their products and services if Ron Paul is not invited to the forum.

if not for the internet we wouldn't know half of what we need to know concerning our country and it's future. the media's lack of integrity is nothing new and there really isn't any good reason to watch the news or read the main stream media when we are looking for an honest assessment of issues concerning our government. since the media is owned by big business, they don't want ron paul as they wouldn't be able continue their abuse and corruption under his watch. ron paul is the only one i would trust. he is so 'REAL'. an honest president, what a concept...


If Dr. Paul is excluded, I will cancel my subscriptions to the Wall Street Journal and Barron's which publications are now owned by Fox's owner Rupert Murdock.


You see the billboards on highways (I-75 in Ocala, FL)... you see the signs on every major intersection (Tampa, St. Pete)... BUT NOT ON TV. THAT IS WHY!!! B/C the MSM is ignoring him... grassroots is flourishing. I LOVE IT. Keep ignoring him and before you know it he will be everywhere... go ron paul


Floyd, not bad, you got 1 out of 2 right. You've been duped by misinformation if you think Ron Paul is a racist. When asked about the money donated from a known white supremist, he said he would put the money to good use rather than give it back, and added that their ideologies were immoral.

I'm not surprised by this move by Fox, they are afraid because Ron Paul is unflappable to their attacks and they know he would come out the winner again. They are still weighing this move out though because they are not sure if it will hurt or help.


We should all start a letter writing campaign against Fox and Fox's financial supporters. Here is a link to the supporters list:

THANK YOU BALTIMORE SUN FOR SPREADING THE TRUTH.
FAUX NEWS HAS NO GUTS WHEN IT COMES TO RON PAUL AND HIS MESSAGE.WE NEED MORE MEDIA LIKE YOU WITH GUTS.
GO RON PAUL.


Ron Paul is a nutcase. Anyone who thinks this man is electable and would keep this country safe is seriously deluded.


lets money bomb the crap out of them tomarrow... we are a collective of the people, big business is no one without us, they are our dependents... they would'nt come to us if we did'nt have all the money... i'm doubling my tea party donation tomarrow.. if they only respect money, then lets show them who has it... RP08


While folks have focused on how Ron Paul is a Republican who opposes the Iraq War, don't ignore that Paul has said "I don't accept" evolution, has taken funds from white supremacists, and doesn't believe in the separation of church and state, according to an article on Alternet (alternet.org/bloggers/ryce/71473/) and a video of Paul speaking (shanktified.com/archives/ron-paul-campaign-on-evolution/).

Since our news is controlled by the government, and our government is supposed to be controlled by us, then let's all start by impeaching every single last member of the senate, the house, D.C. and start electing new trust worthy officials! Lets get this revolution started NOW!


Once again the pseudo republicans in FOX have revealed their identity as an "Unfair and Imbalanced" news network.

Go Ron Paul, you're huge in the Bay Area!


Well, what do you expect from the news station that hosted a debate in which two of the questions, posed by the commentators, were: 'Congressman, you are the only person on this stage who opposes the war...are you running for the nomination of the right party?'.....and my favorite.....'Dr. Paul, who do you take your marching orders from? Al Qaeda?'....what class acts, huh? I am of the opinion that the more his message is censored by the mainstream press, the more interested people will be in him, anyway. I've never seen a more humble, honorable man as a public official. He rocks.

P.S. His answer to the Al Qaeda question was 'No, I take my orders from the Constitution'....spoken like a true gentleman!


This link will send a letter to ALL of those people at once. There is even a prefilled letter you can copy and sign.

Fox News..."FAIR AND BALANCED?? Ha ha ha ha ha
Oh my god...I'm pis.ing my pants!


Fox is usually very passionate about exporting democracy to other countries like Iraq, But in our own country it is trying very hard to stifle it.
This is an insult to all citizens. Americans deserve better than this.
The world is watching how corporate media is manipulating election in USA.


Anyone who is ignorant enough to call Ron Paul racist really needs to realize how many diverse races support him and why. Please stop believing media lies. Ron Paul is the best hope for the rights and freedom for all race.


This is really simple mathematics:

1. Ron Paul's election website has 1,250% more traffic than Huckabee's.

2. Ron Paul is tied for 3rd place in Iowa.

Boycott Fox News for ostercising Ron Paul, our next President.


we all need to email or call Fox and get them to allow Ron Paul in the forum. I've already sent a few emails.


I just cancelled my Nextel service due to its affiliation with Fox. I am in the process of removing patronage from ANY and ALL companies affiliated with Fox. This is unprofessional and unnacceptable behavior of a media outlet in the midst of a campaign.

Why doesn't Rupert Murdoch go screw over his OWN country?

Live Free Or Die.
Ron Paul 2008


Progressive Portal - distorter of the truth. 1. You took Ron's evolution comment out of context. He was clear he'd never let these views influence policy. PLUS, who cares? Only Ron would end the war and the US empire that is bankrupting America. 2. Funds from "white supremacists? Ron didn't solicit funds from this ONE guy. I'm a lot more concerned about the millions given as donations (bribes) to ALL Rons's opponants from the military-industrial complex thats making billions off taxpayer funded government conntracts which enable the empire to keep leading us to doom. 3. Ron "doesn't believe in seperation of church and state". That's just complete crap. He believes in freedom of religion, not government endorsement of any given religion. Any more RP distortions you want to slur him with?


I read something on Townhall.com about a week ago that Jonah Goldberg, Michael Medved and Kevin McCullough were trying to come up with any ideas about why they could exclude Dr Ron Paul from the Republican Presidential Debates...no doubt this is kinda like a similar thing that happened to Ronald Reagan when they tried to take his microphone away from him. Reagan quipped: "Mr Green, I am paying for this microphone." However, in this case they will not even let Ron Paul have a microphone.


From England, you gave this man American citizenship.
Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation owns Fox Television Network, Fox News, the FX Channel, 20th Century Fox Films, Fox 2000, and publisher Harper Collins. News Corp. is the fifth largest megamedia corporation in the nation, with 2003 revenues of approximately $19.2 billion. It is the only other media company which comes close to the top four.

Its Fox News Channel has been a key outlet pushing the Jewish neoconservative agenda that lies behind the Iraq War and which animates both the administration of George W. Bush and the "new conservatism" that embraces aggressive Zionism and multiracialism.

Murdoch is nominally a Gentile, but there is some uncertainty about his ancestry and he has vigorously supported Zionism and other Jewish causes throughout his life. (Historian David Irving has published information from a claimed high-level media source who says that Murdoch's mother, Elisabeth Joy Greene, was Jewish, but we have not been able to confirm this.) Murdoch's number two executive is Peter Chernin, who is president and chief operating officer—and a Jew.

Under Chernin, Jews hold key positions in the company: Gail Berman runs Fox Entertainment Group; Mitchell Stern heads satellite television division DirecTV; Jane Friedman is chairman and CEO of Harper Collins; and Thomas Rothman is chairman of Fox Filmed Entertainment. News Corporation also owns the New York Post and TV Guide, and both are published under Chernin's supervision. The primary printed neoconservative journal, The Weekly Standard, is also published by News Corporation and edited by William Kristol, a leading Jewish neocon spokesman and "intellectual."
Now you know why fox won't let Ron Paul appear.


Paul is acting as if he's being persecuted by Fox news, but there is no New Hampshire GOP presidential debate scheduled for Jan. 6. The event was officially canceled three weeks ago. Ron Paul was, indeed, invited, but never committed to attending before the event was canceled because of the close proximity with the ABC event.


I think the other candidate should refuse to participate as well. I would then have some respect for them. As it stands, I agree with the rest of you. "The Pro War Conference and Mutual Mud Slinging Session". I wonder, just wonder, what they will say about Ron Paul when he cannot be there to defend himself... OR, will they just act like he doesn't exist. Freedom. Their worst nightmare.


Run 3rd party and let the Rep Party kiss our ass.
I am a former Rep National Delegate 1996 and

outfoxed.org examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know.


Please ignore the previous post. That is not represenative of Ron Paul supporters. Ron Paul is for individual freedom and against racist collectivism. We are against neo-conservatism, the ethnic or religious background of the promoters of this philosophy is irrelevant.


It's disgusting how the mass media manipulates the elections to their own agenda(s). America is in big trouble . Ron Paul is the only answer to bring back America to it's former glory. Go Ron Paul !


Let all the RP supporters send a 41 cent letter to FOX news with our strong, yet civil displeasure at their silly game. Drown them in mail, sell your stock and notify their sponsors too! Power to the people and stick it to "The Man!!"


At Fox there is no mention of Ron Paul when discussing the poll results, even though they mention Fred Thompson, who is scoring below Dr. Paul.
Therefore, this does not surprise me.

The rest of the Republican candidates should not participate in this debate, if they have any dignity, if one of the candidates is not invited.


Thank you, Mr. George, for exposing to even more of the populace the status of persona non grata of Ron Paul by Fair and Balanced (HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA) Faux news. They keep this up, they'll be news outlet non grata with a lot of people. I've even seen posts of people who were NOT Ron Paul supporters who are really bothered by this decision to try to silence one of the contenders for the highest office in the land.

Oh, and to the poster who is blaming the "Jews" fuggedabottid - if this is what you think, maybe Ron Paul isn't the man you want in office. These are NOT his views.


Ron Paul should consider this snub a badge of honor!


I am a "nutcase." I appreciate that I finally found someone who sees things the way I do... pretty simple: Killing is bad m'kay

I'm not sure I care what Fox does or not. They will be running afoul of FEC laws if they don't put a disclaimer on the broadcast though. You can't attempt to defeat someone (by omission in this case) without a disclaimer and listing who paid for the ad.

Without equal representation of all qualified candidates, this forum is just another political ad.

Fox has yet to formally rationalize their qualification process except in reference to corporate polls bought by the various parties and media organizations. If they did, the RON PAUL R3VOLUTION would blast those metrics out of the water as well.

As usual, Ron is right. Fox is scared of the message of LIBERTY!! w00t!!


FIXED News has no right to interfere with our so called free election process. I do however know that we all tend to reap what we sow...and that goes also for FIXED News. Sell all of your stocks in their companies and let this leviathan know that we mean what we say. Ron Paul is the only choice in this otherwise corrupted presidential race.


I have emailed 10 of the companies listed and 12 people at Fox "News". I have been very polite and gracious. I am interested to see if Fox reports on the number of emails they get. I am very willing to boycott Fox's sponsors and have communicated this to them. Many of these company's sites are not easy to navigate and send an email to an "appropriate" person. That the MSM is no longer free, honest or independent is a damn shame but not a surprise. Just let the MSM keep proving they are the slaves of big business and we will just turn to the internet for our news. Their loss, their stupidity. For Fox to exclude Dr. Paul is actually kind of funny. They will sure look stupid if Paul does well in IOWA. I hope they wait til he pulls 3rd or better in IOWA and then they will have to ask him to join, but by then it will be obvious even to the masses that they acted out of bias and revenge because Paul has challenged them and their reporting. Fox has been incredibly successful in fooling people into believing they are a news station. They are at best an op/ed outlet for Rupert and his buddies. This reminds me of the time they kept Ralph N not only out of the debate, but illegally kicked him off the grounds. Part of the Ron Paul revolution is about taking our rights back from the powers that we have allowed to become so corrupt. We should not expect this to be easy or to happen very quickly. What I hope we have started is the beginning of a movement of higher awareness of our leaders motives. Ron Paul will make us free, safe and far richer than any other candidate. He has my support and I will just give more and work harder to overcome the roadblocks.



You know the media is going to lie & try to destroy Ron paul's character. But, it won't work.It'll make Ron Paul and his supporters stronger and more determined.Ron Paul speaks the truth ! Ron Paul for Prez.!


A debate that I plan on missing! The only reason that I have watched the past debates was Dr.Ron Paul and his message of freedom,peace,and prosperity!


Thanks so much to the Baltimore Sun (even if it is just a blog and not in print) for covering this important issue


After the last money bomb, the media gave Ron Paul about 1 week of attention. I guess they wanted some of that money and perhaps, as seen by some of the very tough and aggressive interviews such as 'Meet the Press', they wanted to trip him up. However, Ron Paul proved unbeatable in the interviews and debates so now they have instigated a media blackout. It's time for the people to stand up to this. Let their ratings drop, let their share prices fall. Ignore the Media that ignores Ron Paul.


I believe that Ron Paul has one very interesting law suit that can filed against Fox News.


Rep. Dr. Ron Paul is too good for those goons. It's their loss for not inviting him.


there is little on the planet earth worse then fox news. so nothing new there. kind of like propaganda for really stupid people. dangerous though nonetheless.


Forget FOX news, there are two thing we still have as citizens, our voting power and our buying power. I say start boycotting, and spend your money using your head.

Support the little guy and email the heck out of companies who support this kind of fascism.


Who cares? Ron Paul's crazy ideas and impractical views would never work anyway. He isn't even a conservative himself and should stick to his pathetic libertarian party, and let the true Conservatives have the spotlight.

What a schmuck!


Fox has unwittingly just promoted Ron Paul to even further acclaim. People are fed up with the coercion. Thanks Fox for supporting the Ron Paul Revolution. Furthermore, it is time to consider an en masse boycott of perhaps all cable television. The internet and the streets are the only places where free thought still exist.
PS. Austin has legions of Ron Paulers!


Thank you to the Baltimoresun.com for covering this story.

The good Doctor is the only candidate that brings up issues I care deeply about. First and foremost is the God dang INFLATION our goverment is causing. Me and my wife can't afford to buy a house because of the high inflation caused by the Bush administrations borrowing and spending. I thought they were Republicans. Clearly they are not. They are neo-conservatives and Fox news is run by neo-cons who want to continue the Bush Administrations policies


CBS NEWS has replaced Ron Paul's picture with an Elephant !!!!

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/12/30/politics/main3657351.shtml
You can not post a response without joining them ??? so this is what I would have said to the author

Did you lose a picture of Ron Paul? Or has Ron now turned into a huge elephant since he has raised close to $19 million ??? It is we the people not we the corporations -- Is CBS now owned by FOX ? Oh with the latest neo-cons in the FCC it might not be to long before they are !!!!


SHORT AND SELL NEWS CORP SHARES TOMORROW. DUMP AND BOYCOTT THESE MUCKS FROM YOUR LIFE. IGNORE THEM. ACT AND BELIEVE THAT THEY DON'T EXIST


I hope that NH voters realize what is going on. Ron Paul is for the people. Every true patriot has been pushed to the side. Ron Paul wants to restore the Government to the Constitutional size and what does he get, booted from a debate.

I hope and pray that NH voters send a message to the establishment, please vote for Ron Paul, he will make you very proud!

If you need for more info on Ron Paul, just google "Ron Paul"

God Bless!


Wanted to chime in and say thank you for your investigative work. This is still of great interest to anyone who watches politics. Let us know where your research leads.


CBS news has now replaced Ron Paul's picture with a large elephant !!! Must be that $19,000,000 he is close to raising has transformed him into an elephant ????

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/12/30/politics/main3657351.shtml


The media should be ashamed of themselves for failing to cover a candidate with such a vocal and loyal following...


Regrettably, I'm not surprised. I am a Ron Paul supporter...I am a physician concerned about our nation's economy, foreign policy and healthcare system. I happened upon this story...if Ron Paul does not appear on this debate I will max-out my personal donation and I will never tune in to Fox again...PERIOD

+++++

The jig is up FOX News--it's becoming more and more difficult to conceal the fraud! With your exclusion of Ron Paul from your 1/6/08 Republican forum, you have made it painfully clear that your true aim in "fair and honest" news reporting is nothing short of an attempt at strong-arming public opinion towards your establishment-puppet candidates. The moneyed vultures that control your station (this nation, & this planet) seek only for the continued subjugation of our citizenry, the perpetual subversion of truth and liberty, and the swindling of the wealth and freedoms of American poor and middle-classes. Perhaps we Paulities are overreacting? Or maybe, just maybe, we are the few aware of the unabated progression towards American totalitarianism--a movement whose orchestration your organization is complicit in. Get a conscience--get a soul--get a life & then get a new populace to force-feed your pablum to.


I've not voted in 24 years. I've registered Republican so I can vote for Ron Paul.


No No No! This is a GOOD thing for Ron Paul; Americans don't like it when they are being prevented from seeing someone. What if they disinvited Thompson? We would be equally outraged, even if we didn't like Thompson.


This is great news. Fox has now lost every shred of credibility that they might have had as a news organization. Even if they now invite Ron Paul to the debate, they will have done so only to appease public outcry -- and to protect their stock value and prevent their advertisers from fleeing.

What's more, it can only help Ron Paul. The firestorm they've created will only give Ron Paul more publicity, people who aren't familiar with him will be curious to find out more -- and once they do, they'll see that he's a reasonable and sober person. This will not only gain Ron many more mainstream supporters, but galvanaize and energize those supporters he now has. The people of New Hampshire should be outraged that Fox News thinks they're too stupid to make up their own minds.

For a great satire on the president, the mainstream media, and the war on terror, see this YouTube music video from the international award-winning zombie musical feature film, "Song of the Dead." It' stars horror movie veteran Reggie Bannister (Phantasm, Wishmaster, Bubba Ho-tep) as the president of the U.S. The filmmaker, Chip Gubera, is giving a share of his profits from DVD sales to the Ron Paul campaign.

Why are Murdoch Republicans so afraid of Ron Paul?


FOX News=Fascism

I think that the other five loser candidates did not want Ron Paul in the debate because each one of them fears losing the NH Primary to Paul despite the fact that Paul is given no free media coverage.


It's about the war and economy stupid. On the War front, how's it getting better when 899 of our soldiers have died this year, the highest yet. Also, 18,610 Iraquis have died this year, so far. How's it getting better when our dollar is at an all time low value, bankruptcy's and foreclosure's up too, while oil prices are at an all time high price on the world market. yeah it's getting better so vote for the douche bags like Hucklebee and Guiliani who will keep us heading in the same direction - on a highway to hell...viva la Ron Paul rEVOLution. Ron Paul cured my apathy.


I don't take blogs as seriously as I take news. Call me when this is news in the paper, radio and tv.


The Liars are Courupt and they are Absolutely Courupt and a bunch of cronies for the corporate was mongers and liars.
Did they start 911? The Patriot Act? In New Hampshire should change their motto "We really Suck"


Thanks Jason for providing some of the most balanced reporting on Ron Paul among the major corporate media channels.


(Before I say anything else I would like to warn readers that many government operatives have been exposed writing comments on new stories acting as white supremacists and defending Ron Paul. Do not be fooled, it has been proved that those in power (CIA, NSA) have literally hired hundreds of Public Relations experts to act as racists and write reports, blogs, forum posts, and comments in order to make is seam as though Ron Paul supporters and other activists are somehow connected to racism. Don't believe me, investigate it yourself. Groups like the anti-defamation league have been caught threatening Jews, painting swastikas on buildings, and even destroying Jewish landmarks in order to forward there own agendas. Unfortunately the good Jewish people have been taken for a ride by many of their own leaders.)

A few years ago Rupert Murdoch admitted at the world economic forum that Fox News was a propaganda arm for the globalist/pro-war agenda.

When asked, "Did you [fox news] help shape the agenda for the war in Iraq?" (Help convince the American people through biased reporting) Murdock responded with a laugh, "We tried...we basically supported the Bush policy in the Middle East."

Don't be fooled, Fox is neither Left, nor Right. Fox, along with the rest of the big media cartels, is a globalist propaganda machine. They would support leftists like Zbigniew Brzezinski (A pro-war leftist who helped Mao kill 2 million) just ask quickly as men like Dick Cheney. They support anyone who will make money for Media, War Profiteers, Bankers, and Big Government.

Wake up America!!! 120 Vets commit suicide every week!! That's government numbers!!


This is the First Time I have ever given any money to anyone running for office in my life.
Ron Paul is the First


I say:Good riddance. Why should Ron Paul do any shows that will only try to discredit and slant him?
Like Ron Paul said once:"It's their show, they can do whatever they want."

What's troubling is that America is being destroyed by an evil and ugly old man who wasn't even born here and people let him go about his business. Where's the justice?
Let's focus on watching the votes in IO and NH.


Youtube search 'outfoxed' to watch movie about FOX news.

FOX also owns myspace.

Silly people dont realize that the internet has changed elections permanently. Even if he doesnt win.. do you think this many energetic, patriotic Americans are going to go away?

I see pink slips for Congress in the near future.


Fox News..."fair and balanced"? lets try "fearful and biased" Ron Paul represents everyone who has ever hoped the political media machines of America would eventually be derailed by a candidate of substance who is not afraid to take on the establishment. DEATH to the STATUS QUO! GO RON PAUL!!!!!!!!


From a "twice" Bush voter, I have seen the light. these neo-cons have the GOP snowed. I'm 110% for Dr. Paul.
A politicians character can only be told by his record and his courage not my his soundbytes. Words are cheap especially in politics.\GO DR. PAUL!!!!!


I am curious about one thing. Will there be enough selling of enough stock to even make a dent in the stock of Fox?
Just wondering.


Who in the world cares? FOX is dead and I haven't watched it for months. Let them keep Dr Paul out of there so-called forum. ABC is having a Republican debate the day before and Dr Paul has a full schedule on Jan 6th. FOX will keep shooting themselves in the foot and so be it. RP supporters will grow and grow because Freedom is popular and if FOX wants to supress Freedom, so BE IT!


Personally, I will not give another dime to any of Rupert Murdochs industries (that goes for the wall street journal. I will make sure that I also tell those who advertise with Fox that I will be more likely to not buy from them as they support Fox News.


FOX affiliates will lose their FCC license over this Ron Paul Black out. They will not have served the public interest to exclude any party candidates.
There will be 100,000 emails of "public record"

here's how

"FCC Public File"
"Not acting in the public interest"

1) At the beginning of EACH email or FAX to an affiliate (actual broadcaster, not the network) ask that the comment be placed in their "FCC Public File." They are required to comply with your request.

This "Public File" is reviewed by the FCC each time that station's license is up for renewal. Not getting a license renewed means the station is worthless.

Give your opinion that the broadcaster is "Not acting in the public interest" and give detailed reasoning.

We can specifically start slamming each affiliate under the FCC "Equal Time Rule."

Fox News should have to register with the US government as an agent of a foreign power. It certainly isn't serving American interests.


If he really doesn't get invited, the media will surely cover the MONSTOROUS ron paul rally that I'm sure will ensue all day outside the St. Anselm College. Mark my words, Dr. Paul's message will be there, televised or not.


I will gladly boycott Fox News if Ron Paul remains un invited.


ALL PAUL SUPPORTERS PLEASE DONATE - NEW YEAR'S EVE MONEY BOMB!


Has anyone tried to find out why Ron Paul wasn't invited? Personally after hearing Ron Paul speak, I don't think he's very qualified. That said, obviously if this is a Republican forum the all Republican Candidates should be invited.

Another comment; the guy who said that our Democracy is an illusion needs to get a passport and travel the world, live in a few countries and then he/she will understand just how good we have it in the USA. I've done that for 25 years! Nothing is perfect, and we have to keep working at it but there is no doubt we are on top of the list as far as Freedom goes. Never doubt that!


Ron Paul 2008....
Ron paul is a true conservative, not a reublicrat commie like the other candidates ..By fox news leaving him off of the forum goes to show us that our elections are rigged and they dont want the truth to get out.RON PAUL GETS MY VOTE.


I will vote for Ron Paul, without being told by Big Media what to think about him and whether to ignore him. However, I do think it's sad that so many people will take their directions from Big Media and simply cast their votes on whoever is cast as the frontrunner according to the Big Media polls. That sort of behavior makes a mockery of the democratic process.


Just look at the ratio of positive to negative comments right here. It's beautiful! The two people who had negative comments didn't even express a reason for their vitriol, they just seem to hate for the sake of hating.

Dr. Paul is gonna win this election and save our country. He has the right ideas and he has the integrity to follow through with his promises. Name one other candidate that you could confidently say that about.

Go Ron Paul

www.ronpaul2008.com


I'm sure there is not one of you at FOX who dares to write your honest opinions, because if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. You are all traitors!


Ron Paul 2008....
Ron paul is a true conservative, not a reublicrat commie like the other candidates ..By fox news leaving him off of the forum goes to show us that our elections are rigged and they dont want the truth to get out.RON PAUL GETS MY VOTE.


Land of the free? Yeah, whatever America. People who tell the truth get marginalized and censored while propagandists are encouraged.

I love Ron Paul, but he'll never be able to get that huge base of "hicks" and "dumbasses" to ever vote for him. It's now a brainwashed and lazy nation.


@Geoeffrey B Slater- How can you say he isn't qualified? That's gotta be one of the most uninformed statements I've heard regarding Dr. Paul. The man is a 10-term congressman- go look at his voting record. He knows more about the Constitution than anybody on the Supreme Court (just look at virtually any ruling in the last 100 years for proof of their incompetence and bias).

He sincerely loves this country, what it has provided for his family, and he wants to give back to us. Sound sappy? Yeah, but it's true and he's the 1-in-a-million who will never, ever sell us out. You can not say those things about any other candidate.

Not qualified? I hardly think so. He's so much more qualified than any other candidate that they should bow before him...however, he's to humble to allow that even if they tried.


It has begun. This is election tampering! Perhaps not in the strict legal sense, but in the sense that the media has a social contract to uphold. While what Fox has done is not illegal it is an ugly, dastardly betrayal of the public trust.

I only have a few shares of Newscorp in my portfolio. They'll be gone tomorrow. Hasta la vista Faux stocks !!!

Viva la Revolution!

I don't know if this is correct or not. Anyone else hear about this?

Spread the word! All Iowa Paul supports... Flood the caucus. Make Faux News look flat silly!

Then they will have no choice but to include him.

If they don't EVERYONE will know!

By the way.... WE OWN AUSTIN TEXAS!!!!


I gotta say I'm becoming impressed with Balt. Sun - They are the only ones that are up to the minute with this story and many others I have searched out lately. At least there seems to be at least one dedicated news team out there who doesn't check out on the holidays.


It's almost as though Fox News was created just in order to give CNN credibility it only deserves in comparison. But no, Murdoch truly is the enemy of all freedoms, except for his own. Enjoy your stay in hell, Rupert the Yellow, as history should know you. I'll be voting for Ron Paul with a clear conscience, something the Yellow has never had.

"It profits a man nothing to give his soul for the world, but for some half-rate cable news channel, Rupert, for some half-rate cable news channel?"


and people still think we live in a democracy.

Ron Paul is getting screwed by FOX. However people are taking action and dumping New Corp Stock.


There are a lot of forces at work against the Ron Paul revolution. This won't be easy, that's for sure. It really has to come together in the next week. I feel that Paul has to win New Hampshire... WIN it!


Although I differ with Ron Paul on key issues, I feel very compelled to support him because of his obviously apparent integrity.

Foxnews seems recklessly insistent on discounting Dr. Paul any way that they can.

What is it about him that they are afraid of? What is it about him exactly that they don't like?

Well?

Lets take a look at what king of man he is.

Most telling to me about his character is that he let himself be drafted into military service, when he could have easily applied for, and received a student deferment.

He also has a record of voting against congressional pay-raises, and even declined his own congressional pension.

This coming from an American politician seems somehow outrageous!

Ron Paul is now the Rock Star celebrity of American politics, due in part to the obvious bias against im in main stream media.

An authentically humble and honest man, he stands out as an intellectual giant amongst his status-quo peers.

We American's love underdogs, and this will be weighing heavily in Dr. Paul's favor come election day.

Expect the unexpected from this fine Patriot, I certainly do!


Why Be Surprised? Fox is the NeoCon Central.

by Melinda Pillsbury-Foster

We need to send thank you notes to Fox for handing us this opportunity. Now, the Ron Paul Revolution can show America why the past 'debates' always leave them with more questions.

Fox is excluding the candidate who raised the most money; money raised from small donations, direct from the hearts and labor of Americans; by doing that they finally admit, "Presidential campaigns, all political campaigns, are carried out to simulate elections. The people can have no real choices. The real choices are made by those who own us, corporations."

For our entire lifetimes those same corporations, working through and with government, have controlled us. They accomplish that through our mortgages, with banks issuing those mortgages by creating money, against the law but with the cooperation of the FED and government. They do it with credit card companies that change the terms and then hound us for with usurious interest rates. They do it through the money we earn and struggle to save, sucking out our labor for their own profit through endless expansion of the money supply. Every part of our lives profits them; therefore they demand to control all of us.

They exclude Ron because he speaks the truth about all of these things. For the same reason they are determined that the real questions will not be asked. Cast your mind back to past debates; you will hear that echoing silence. All questions were parsed to avoid exposing the collusion between government and corporations that is used to keep us on the grids of their greed.

They use our love of America, our honesty, our decency, our concern for our families, our patriotism, our love of God, to exact that control. They divide us and manipulate us so that we fight each other instead of seeing the truth.

Then, they run elections.

That is the simulation they play to entertain and confuse us. With the Ron Paul Revolution that stopped working like the smoothly orchestrated play they have put on for so long.

We need therefore to thank them for this monumental opportunity. That is what this is. Yes, boycott their advertisers. But get ready to move into a new phase of Revolution.

We will have our own debate. This time, we frame the debate and set the rules. This time the questions they evade are the ones asked.

We will let CNN or another media outlet televise the event. Those who write the questions will be the people who understand what has been happening to America, the voices silenced until now. We will make sure they answer those questions even if the GOP candidates, personally, remain silent.

The GOP Presidential Debate in New Hampshire will be held where ever they choose. Close by we will hold the real Debate. We will invite all of the candidates. They will decline, pleading their prior commitment. They will suspect what is coming.

Every living individual, and perhaps the ghosts of the previous Revolutionaries, will sense the importance of the event. The blimp will be flashing its message, the Granny Warriors will be on the ground and on the air. The people will begin signing the Declaration of Independence for the 2nd Revolution across the New Hampshire, focusing in on Ron Paul Hall.

Online sites will cover unfolding events. Local papers will get updates, ready to print several times a day.

Airplanes with banners will be seen from every town, from every farm. Every citizen of New Hampshire will understand that the people are about to be heard. The State of Live Free or Die will remember its proud heritage, recalled to that vision by ordinary people who have discovered they can do it themselves.

The embers of freedom will ignite.

The media has used the debates to keep us in line. Before we were content to just be included, Dr. Paul marginalized and sneered at by such as Sean Hannity. That is over.

Now we shatter their pretensions, change the frame of assumptions they take for granted, taking up the vision of freedom promised in the Declaration of Independence. Beginning in New Hampshire we will start climbing off their grid of media deceit, intended to control us, keep us compliant and quiet.

We will begin signing a new Declaration, with the causes carefully laid out.

We build a new media, connecting Americans to the truth.

In the hall we hire, Ron Paul Hall, the seats will be filled to overflowing the night of January 6th. Big screens will have been set up in buildings and parks nearby. The people will have been gathering for days to hear and see.

The black limousines will roll up to the GOP event through crowds holding signs that read, "The Revolution is Here," and "Join the Ron Paul Revolution." Activists, as ever, will innovate, exercising their power. The faces of the GOP candidates and their few supporters will be ashen. They will feel fear although no threats were ever made. We will ignore them.

In their auditorium there will be many empty seats; it will feel cold, abandoned. Their audience will be comprised of GOP faithful who are hoping for profits from their political activities. They will be uncomfortable, tense. A few will wear buttons in support of some candidate. Those who do will have carried those buttons in pockets to the event before putting them on.

They are afraid because their world is ending. They no longer matter. They are the past. We are the future of America.

In the Ron Paul Hall excitement will have been building for days; there will be laughter and joy, tears and nearly unbearable anticipation. Those attending will know that this event will be one that remains with them forever. The two events will take place at exactly the same time. No events could be more different. One is about the end, the other a new beginning.

On stage there will be an individual for each absent candidate. Each is highly qualified, grounded in all relevant disciplines, someone who has done the research thoroughly and completely. The compiled record of votes, life history, platform, how and when that platform changed, and, very important, who is funding them, will be available. Absent, each candidate will speak through their own record, despite their silence. Ron Paul will speak for himself. Only he has lived transparently.

The Master of Ceremonies, Chris Lawton, will ask the questions giving each their turn. But what you will hear, for the first time, is the truth, drawn from the evidence of what each has done.

America will hear. On a screen above the stage you will see the GOP event as it limps along. The sound from that event is turned off, as it should be. Their words were all lies, anyway.

When all the words are spoken there will be a long moment of silence.

From that moment the Revolution will flow into the mainstream of America.

The website made available so that all can see for themselves the documentation may occasionally go down, over loaded with traffic; demand will grow. On the sputtering campaign trail candidates will continue to lie. Several will drop out of the race. Americans will study those hard, unpalatable facts they had not imagined possible. In the days that follow each will experience anguish, revulsion, and then acceptance.

And the Revolution will grow because the people see the truth and have the tools to enact change.

We live in a human world that is held in place through our faith. We have accepted ideas that we never asked be proved. That faith made it possible for our lives and labor to be converted into the wealth controlled by individuals without conscience. Now, we, the people, will get the answers.

The people will govern themselves because now they can.


Watch this Fox News documentary, its insane.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuorIjt1HG0


This is CLEAR evidence of the establishment (not government) that's running america today. Makes me want to puke!


Hey it's their ratings in the toilet!! Ron Paul is the only candidate who has best interest of this great country and American People in mind. I do not want my kids to end up in a society fill with laws designed to take away more and more freedom and privacy, high taxes and a new war every time we turn around! That is not what America is about. Ron Paul has My Vote!!!


I cannot believe what I am seeing,fox news should change the name, to the fox political show, starring the fox being walked by big brother. I am a republican and I say it is vote for Ron Paul or none at all.got it, stop ignoring him.your acting like a bunch of communist.


To FOX:

- Invite Dr. Ron Paul


This is simply outrageous. The continued attempts by media sources to control the outcome of the election is shameful, and down right treasonous. I have called Fox News and lodged a complaint, urging them to invite Dr. Paul. Citing his wide spread support, and viability as a canidate. One voice, but one among many, we must bring these news agencys in line with the public will.


In my opinion, this is good for Paul. He's going to get tons of media by NOT being invited. Plus, if he was there, they would just be asking him questions to smear him and put words in his mouth as they have done on every previous occasion. F@#% em


How often is the candidate with the highest fourth quarter fundraising and the most grassroots volunteers excluded from a televised debate?

Fox has now excuse for this. Even if they rely on poll numbers, he consistently polls ahead of Fred Thompson in New Hampshire.

They are going to look really stupid and biased when Ron Paul finishes ahead of several of the people they invited in Iowa, just 3 days earlier.


My email to FOX NEWS (feel free to copy or email seperate msg to them):

The jig is up FOX News--it's becoming more and more difficult to conceal the fraud! With your exclusion of Ron Paul from your 1/6/08 Republican forum, you have made it painfully clear that your true aim in "fair and honest" news reporting is nothing short of an attempt at strong-arming public opinion towards your establishment-puppet candidates. The moneyed vultures that control your station (this nation, & this planet) seek only for the continued subjugation of our citizenry, the perpetual subversion of truth and liberty, and the swindling of the wealth and freedoms of American poor and middle-classes. Perhaps we Paulities are overreacting? Or maybe, just maybe, we are the few aware of the unabated progression towards American totalitarianism--a movement whose orchestration your organization is complicit in. Get a conscience--get a soul--get a life & then get a new populace to force-feed your pablum to.


People in the U.S. are waking up! Ron Paul and everything he stands for cannot be stopped. We, the people are driving him. I am so proud to be part of this movement. Ron Paul is loved more by his supporters than any other candidate. No debate is necessary to prove that point. Am I right? You bet I am...no matter what "Fox" does. I, for one, will not buy from Fox's sponsors anymore from here on out. And, trust me, I have a list. Orbitz, Travelocity...bye-bye! Farewell. Adieu. It's been real shopping with you.


For all of you who posted comments stating your disdain for the state of our "democracy" please do a little research on your own. I realize that this does seem to be bias, but I'm not going to state opinions on it as I don't know the reasons. I would suggest before you make yourselves look foolish you do so as well. Now for those of you who haven't already caught on, I'm bringing this up because you obviously need to back off a little and review the basics, before you get to complex things like corporate interaction with politics. The reason I state this? America is a REPUBLIC, not a democracy and yes there is a difference.


Fox News will loose a viewer PERMANANTLY if they don't invite Ron Paul to the fourm. We/I can get all the unedited news from the so-far unregulated internet.

Sad realy, that "they" think this will stop the Ron Paul revolution. The ball is already in motion and I don't care what or who is running I will write Ron Pauls' name in if I have to. I, like many of you have resolved to never again vote for the lesser of two evils.

We need to spread the word of liberty more and not be scared to speak out!

GO RON PAUL!


It may work out for the best that Fox didn’t include Ron Paul, he will probably end up getting more media attention from other networks this way!


FOX News is run by a traitorous band of self-serving thugs. Is this an outrageous comment? Not really. If one thinks about the role of media, to provide disparate viewpoints, to allow for alternative voices, then one can't determine FOX News to be a part of the democratic process Its "journalism" simply cloaks their viewpoints in opinionated pieces that looks like it is "fair and balanced" but is actually a lever to promote public argument in a certain direction.

O'Reilly loves to say that the "administration" won't come on his program to debate him. In reality, there is nothing to debate. They (FOX News and the administration) both like the "war on terra," promote the nanny-state government, and love globalization (because they are both happy meddling in others' affairs).

There is no surprise in FOX's dismissal of Ron Paul. FOX-sponsored debates have been skewed against him. Their coverage is almost nil (but mostly negative).

Let's face it: FOX and Murdoch are racist, xenophobic elites who want to control the world by military intervention and propaganda. In their world, a "select few" make the decisions and the rest are left to carry out the mandates.

Goodbye, FOX, may ye rest in peace.


Fox not inviting Ron Paul to the Debate?

They just don't realize that the times have already changed and they are trying to hold on to the old way of doing things. People can get their more truthful information from other souces these days. WE are the consumers and we get to decide where we want to place our worthless dollar. We don't have to support anyone who doesn't support the PEOPLE or our ability to make up our own minds.

We are getting smarter and this only proves we aren't even close to being represented by Big Corporate and Politically Run Medias.

Fox not inviting Ron Paul to the Debate?

It just adds Fuel for the Flame of Freedom.... in the Revolution. Ron Paul just represents the idea that we are growing tired of what is going on and can't hang with the status quo anymore. We want to be free to think independently, not to be fed like a flock of sheep.

Just see what "We the People" can do now. Go Ron Paul and supporters!


Just a letter written by my fiance, sent to all fox email listings. Doesn't take long to get your point across. Send those emails.


"I have spent the last few nights watching coverage on the Bhutto assassination, and I am disappointed. I find it ironic that your reporters and guest pundits speak of free and fair elections in Pakistan, while in America we lack exactly that. Your station reports that fair elections are necessary to solve the problems Pakistan experiences, yet here in America your station blatantly excludes a candidate who stands for free speech, assembly, and fair elections under the Constitution of the United States of America. I am speaking of the supposed exclusion of Ron Paul from an open forum between the Republican candidates running for the Presidency. Time and time again your station has ignored his campaign for Presidency, but America has not. Ron Paul raised six million dollars in one day and going into the fourth quarter has raised nearly twenty million hard-earned American dollars. I am further disappointed that several reporters have chalked up Paul's success to the efforts of a few groups of fanatic conspiracy theorists. I myself am one of these hard-working Americans who gave what I could. I am, quite frankly, offended by several of the remarks of your reporters. Furthermore, I am frightened that my children may one day live in a country where political candidates are chosen for them and not by them. While I love my country, I am horrified at the blatant misrepresentation of the Constitution. I can only hope that my words, as well as those similar, will not continue to be ignored."

Kristen


FOX' owner is supporting Hillary. FOX is nothing more but a vehicle to manipulate conservatives into a big government position. While Reagan got his microphone taken away(Ron Paul was his supporter), FOX is so scared it won't even let him come near a microphone. They cancelled their last debate when it became obvious Ron Paul made their polls 5%requirement. I spend about $25,000 a year on a local FOX station, so I will look into moving my ads to others. Only Ron Paul is unifying Republican,Libertarian, Constitution parties and on top drawing enough Democrats to beat Hillary badly. They will promote all the republican candidates that have no chance and even if they could win, they will be no different than Hillary.


I had no idea how bad the media coverage can control the voting American public. Everyone should be included in the debate or what ever it is. I am now voting for Ron Paul.. and will be following the Ron Paul Revolution.. Thanks fox for bringing him to my attention by excluding him..


This is good that FOX has cut the lifeline of Ron Paul on the 6th. This past week; and especially this weekend the major news stations have blacked out Ron Paul; giving lots of time to those polling below him.

I am glad, because more and more people are waking up the fact that there is a New World Order for a One World Government that controls the media.

Think I am crazy; just google "David Rockefeller 1991 cfr Bilderberg" and see how he talks about controlling the media.

Folks the Constitution hangs by a thread; God will raise up noble spirits to protect the Constitution. Never vote for a presidential candidate that wants a New World Order under a CFR agenda -- unless you want to lose all of your civil liberties. Join the Constitution Party or Indie AMerican.


Learn about this future President by watching Ron Paul videos. Once you know the facts it is your duty as an American citizen to educate others.

Ron Paul for President in 2008!


Dear Ron Paul Supporters,
You are all pathetic. Ron may be a nice guy, but he lacks the charisma and poise that it takes to be president. He knows he stands no chance, and the GOP won't put him up even if he won all the polls. He should convert to democrat and cripple their party, and take all you diehard Paul cronies with him. If he actually ran on conservative values he would get attention from the networks. Instead he masquerades as a republican while admittedly is a libertarian, yet wants out of IRAQ like every far-left liberal. Is it any wonder why he is not taken seriously by the GOP? Nevertheless, you all can keep wasting your money on his failed and worthless campaign, because after Iowa and NH, he'll either drop out and live in luxury from all your donations, or he'll run independent and get 3% of the general election and be a laughing stock like Perot was. Pull your collective heads out, realize that he has no shot, and put your energy into something worthwhile - like abolishing the ACLU or debunking "global warming" lies.


Ron Paul will win and the establishment will loose. Love to see that.


Although I differ with Ron Paul on key issues, I feel very compelled to support him because of his obviously apparent integrity.

Foxnews seems recklessly insistent on discounting Dr. Paul any way that they can.

What is it about him that they are afraid of? What is it about him exactly that they don't like?

Expect the unexpected from this fine Patriot, I certainly do!


Thanks Feaux News, because of you, I will redouble my efforts. I am even goiing to that crazy old man's hardware store who sells Ron Paul yard signs. I'm going to pepper them throughout the county.

Only when we quit lamenting about a broken media and move on can we break their vice-grip.


Ron Paul is the only candidate who will get us out of Iraq. The military industrial complex is winning & will continue to win unless the public stands up and fights.

Bruce Sammut


Although I differ with Ron Paul on key issues, I feel very compelled to support him because of his obviously apparent integrity.

Foxnews seems recklessly insistent on discounting Dr. Paul any way that they can.

What is it about him that they are afraid of? What is it about him exactly that they don't like?

Well?

Lets take a look at what king of man he is.

Most telling to me about his character is that he let himself be drafted into military service, when he could have easily applied for, and received a student deferment.

He also has a record of voting against congressional pay-raises, and even declined his own congressional pension.

This coming from an American politician seems somehow outrageous!

Ron Paul is now the Rock Star celebrity of American politics, due in part to the obvious bias against im in main stream media.

An authentically humble and honest man, he stands out as an intellectual giant amongst his status-quo peers.

We American's love underdogs, and this will be weighing heavily in Dr. Paul's favor come election day.

Expect the unexpected from this fine Patriot, I certainly do!


Let your voice be heard....Send an email

To Whom it may Concern,

I am writing to express my disappointment and displeasure upon discovering Dr. Ron Paul will be excluded from the New Hampshire Debates. Dr. Paul has placed #1 among Republicans AND Democrats at AOL's spam-proof poll. Dr. Paul LEADS ALL Republican candidates in fund raising this quarter. Dr. Paul is tied for third place in IOWA. Dr. Paul's support is known to be great among Independents, former Republicans and Democrats. Surely these people deserve to have their candidate heard! Dr. Paul Is the MOST searched for candidate on the internet. The exclusion of Dr. Paul from these debates would be for me the final convincing piece of evidence that we the American citizens are no longer in control of our destiny. Once the process to file FEDERAL complaints via the FCC is automated, you may expect a flood of letters to your affiliate stations stating FOX affiliates are NOT acting in the public interest.

He will likely have raised over 21 million by midnight.

It's not that several dozen Ron Paul supporters are donating tens of thousands, it's more that tens of thousands of Ron Paul fans are donating several dozens.

It's like he's putting on a Rock Concert, and the tickets sell out fast!


Thank you very much for shutting down the spin with some real reporting.


This is not a Left or Right, Dem versus GOP, Fox versus CNN thing. Big Media, being the mouth of Big Corporate America, routinely excludes those who don't worship at their altar. Ron Paul is just the latest in a long line of independent thinkers to get locked out---Ralph Nader can and has written books about how he has been locked out.


FOX is nothing more than a collection of war mongering shills for the military industrial complex. Who is Gods name takes those people seriously?


I agree that Dr. Paul's exclusion by FOX clearly demonstrates that his platform is contrary to their interests, whatever those happen to be.

Also, I notice here and elsewhere on the web, that the negative comments about Dr. Paul are always insults -- ie he is a kook, he is a racist etc. With no substantive reasoning or explanation. Just ad-hominem attacks.

That tells me an awful lot about the "other side", their motivation, their intellect, and their ability to think critically and research issues independently.

And it gives me hope for a positive outcome.


So instead of a money bomb for RP.... could we do a reverse money bomb on fox news? everyone can get together and short the stock, try to trigger a sell off? just a thought.


Fox News is Globalist Neocon Central...Propagandists Extraordinaire.

I'm voting for Ron, no matter how much they want to believe he's not "viable."

BTW, Fred Thompson? BWAhahahahahahahahahah!


What a complete joke... "Fair & Balanced" & "We report and you decide"...

Bullshit. Fox has once again shown its true colors as a shill for the neocon movement. And to think I used to like to watch Fox.


Why does Ron Paul need Fox News? He has a BLIMP!


I used to think Fox was fair and balanced, now I know the truth... they are one of the "dividers" of this country. But liberty will unite us again, the fight for the Constitution will unite free men where political agendas divide us.


It may not be right, but isn't FOX within its rights to invite whomever they want to their forum?


Yet another attempt by the brain washing media and the party to shove another puppet down our throats. They all know that Ron Paul would win if the mass media were to actually let his message of hope leak out to the public at large.


FOX is a trash channel.
If they exclude Ron Paul, my mother, grandmother, her aunt, her uncle will all vote for him. Better propaganda you cannot give.


We've had one doctor for the dems and now we have one for the repubs. Neither one would be my pick for President. That said Ron Paul is a viable candidate for that Presidency and should be invited to the forum.What other way would be better in order to start bringing this country back together?


On December 9th, the Libertarian National Committee passed two motions relating to Ron Paul. One was a formal request for Paul to consider running as a Libertarian Party candidate should he not obtain the Republican nomination:

"In the event that Republican primary voters select a candidate other than Congressman Paul in February of 2008, the Libertarian National Committee invites Congressman Ron Paul to seek the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party to be decided in Denver, Colorado during the Memorial Day weekend of 2008."

From The SWAMP Dec 27, 2007:
"f he doesn't do well in the early primaries, Paul said he would re-evaluate his Republican bid and the possibility of a third-party run depending on how he does in the contests on Super Tuesday, Feb. 5.

"With my staff I've never discussed it, but I sort of have that in my mind."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ergo, why should Fox News waste viewer time by bringing this fringe right-winger with single-digit popularity to the debate? Ron Paul clearly has no Republican Party allegiance. You go Ron Paul!


The New World Order owns the goverment, the media and we own each one of you and your children. And there is nothing you can do to stop us! Say goodbye to your beloved USA and hello to our North American Union. God bless and have a prosperous 2008


Some months back in the early days of the race, Fox News with Hannity banging the drum, was trumpeting the people's poll to determine who won the debate. Hannity was so certain it was going to be his sweet Rudy. Well, guess again, Ron Paul won the poll. Hannity quickly dismissed the results and hurriedly went on to some other talking point. Ah, you got to love Fox.


I am another "liberal Democrat" that is 100% behind Ron Paul. His message supercedes words such as "republican", democrat, liberal, conservative, etc." He desires to save America for all citizens.

FOX doesn't know it yet, but Ron Paul is in their best interest.


I call for a NATIONAL BOYCOTT of FOX NEWS and ALL it's advertisers. That's what O'Reilly does when he doesn't like something a company does, so let's ALL band together and do it. This is ridiculous.


The Ron Paul movement is bigger than Ron Paul


The Ron Paul movement is not just about the 72 year old doctor from Texas. He merely serves as an example, perhaps the best example, of a patriotic American doing what he can to serve his nation. The movement is about patriotism. There is no special interest money greasing the movement: no pot of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow for long term supporters like that waiting for Bush-Cheney supporters (think cushy jobs at Halliburton or other defence contractors). There is no prospect of tapping easy money through appeals to voter emotions like there is for Democrats with their promises of fixing everything for the people with a wave of the government wand. The Ron Paul movement is about educating people about the real long term interests of America and constantly having to deconstruct the mistruths being sold by political opportunists to the general population. This is a movement of patriotism, and it takes heart and courage to be a part of it.

What inspires the movement is love. We in the Ron Paul movement, in fighting for an ever more prosperous America, do so for our eternal destiny, as our fate is inextricably tied to that of our civilization.


Faux news is a corporate controlled fascist network which is working for the elite secret societies which run the world promoting their new world order. I plan to boycott all advertisers on Faux and also turn them off. As a matter of fact I have already done so....

Vote Ron Paul Boycott Faux and supporters!


Gee, THANKS FOX NEWS! You are now going to provide an unintentional "slingshot" effect for Ron!

How absolutely stupid!


FOX SUCKS, GO RON PAUL


A fox is known for its slyness and cunning. Fox News is about as sly and cunning as a fascist jackboot bludgeoning a citizen that the state has designated to be non top tier- a non person, as the Soviets used to call us.


Ron Paul is a nutcase. Anyone who thinks this man is electable and would keep this country safe is seriously deluded.

Posted by: Janet | December 30, 2007 8:08 PM

Face it, ANYONE who runs for this thankless job governing a bunch of whiners is a nutcase.

I'm not a Paul supporter, but the man has proven himself "electable" already. And boy, did Bush do a great job keeping us safe by ignoring intelligence on the 9/11 attack. Better a nutcase like Paul than a ***(nevermind).

I'll say it again. If it came down to Clinton vs. Paul, I'd vote for Paul.


I am a student that came from Mexico in the year 2000 and now I've over-extended my visa. Primordially when politicians talk about illegal immigration they don't really have someone like me in mind even though I am part of the issue. I came here on a plane, went to a private college and decided to stay longer for a while. Ron Paul says he has to close and secure the borders, no amnesty, no welfare and also end birthright citizenship. He highlights how the illegal immigration issue over populates American hospitals and schools. Ron Paul's policies don't look too good to any that hold an illegal status yet I would personally vote for him a thousand times if I could. Anyone that is truly serious about solving the immigration issue has to first put it under control. Only few benefit from the way things are now, obviously not the American people nor the poor people that infiltrated this country in search of a better life. The immigration problem is not a problem at all but a direct effect of how special interest groups can influence the policies in the USA in order to get wealthy. Not because they are evil but because it is simply their job. Ron Paul represents the interests of the American people and it is precisely why they are so fiercely trying to shut him off. The best way to do so is by ignoring him and also by retaining him in the dark. I've been here for almost eight years and unfortunately I am more concerned about American politics than most USA citizens I've met, hence successfully completing this vicious circle. I also want to highlight something that gets overlooked constantly. It is a common habit when talking about illegal immigration to bring up how they avoid paying taxes. Everyone seems to forget that it is the employer's responsibility to verify the legal status of the person applying for the job before hiring them first. If the employer finds out or knows that the person applying for the job has an illegal status and decides to hire them anyways, it is the responsibility under the IRS laws for the employer to deduct and pay 30% in taxes off the paycheck while at the same time facing criminal penalties for hiring such an illegal person. Once the US employer has become aware of the illegal status of the person he is about to hire then it is him who is stashing the 30% for taxes into his pocket, not the illegal immigrant. The illegal immigrant has no way, there is no tax form to fill out that allows him to pay taxes even if he wanted to. You can't talk about the illegality of immigrants avoiding to pay taxes unless you realize that you can only press charges to a US citizen for it. Illegal immigrants would only be guilty of not paying taxes if there was such a way to truly fake a social security card and/or a fake resident card to trick the employer to hire them first and there is not. In reality you can easily get something that looks like a real social security card or something that looks like a real resident card but the data will never match the government's database. Any employer that performs an employment verification check would see that the given numbers never match the given name hence exposing the fraud and forcing the story to always end there.


It seems to be pretty obvious FOX NEWS perceives Ron Paul to be a clear threat to some aspect of their agenda with all this beating around the bush about including him in the upcoming forum. FOX NEWS is ridiculous.

SC voter for RON PAUL 2008!


I had no idea who Ron Paul was until I heard he was not being invited to Fox's forum.

I have now made up my mind that he is the best candidate for president. Thanks Fox, I will always do the opposite of what you tell me from now on!


The maninstream media has been steadily losing all credibility.

Thank God for the internet.


How many of you remember an effort earlier in the year by Democratic presidential candidates to boycott a forum sponsored by Fox News?

While it's wrong for Fox to exclude Ron Paul, I think he has benefited from lack fo press coverage in the specialty and mainstream media because if more people really knew where he stood on the issues, he would not be so popular. Even the left-leaning Mother Jones magazine has a surprisingly uncritical article about Ron Paul in the current issue.

I can understand why most libertarians and many conservative Republicans would support Ron Paul. I'm baffled by his appeal to centrist and liberal Democrats.

One of the best resources to understand where a candidate stands on the issues is the website vote-smart.org. It has information on current elected officials and candidates running for office. One of the most interesting parts of the website is the list of ratings by various interest groups. For example, Ron Paul has received 100% ratings from the very conservative John Birch Society and Phylis Shafly's Eagle Forum as well as Gun Owners of America. The Americans United for Separation of Church & State rated him at 17% and the League of Conservation Voters rated him at 25%.

With respect to his votes on issues important to Aftican Americans, he was rated 39% by the NAACP.

Ron Paul completely misunderstands climate change by treating it as a a property rights issue (people with property can sue for damage caused by pollution) rather than propose measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

If Ron Paul or any other Republican is elected in 2008, there will be continued under investment in national parks, bridges, local & intercity bus and trains, waterworks and environmental improvement projects.


www.ronpaulvideos.net ... for anyone who wants to learn more, this is a great site for people to educate themselves about this man of integrity. vote for the restoration of america...vote for RON PAUL.


Want to learn about Fox News' real agenda. Lookup OUTFOXED on google video.
Rupert Murdoch hands out memos with 'talking points' and the 'offical opinion' of the network each day.


You know something is severely wrong with our country when we're focusing all our time, energy, and resources trying to provide "fair" elections to places like Iraq and Pakistan when our own electoral process is a sham. There can be denying the media blackout of Ron Paul any longer. This latest move by Fox News makes their intentions pretty clear.

- Another Ron Paul supporter from Harford County, Maryland


Who still watches Fox News anyway? It isn't like Fox has ever been anything more than Murdoch's version of Pravda. He has dressed up his propaganda channel with new graphics, a couple pretty blonde news readers, and that comical "fair and balanced" slogan, but it never was news. If it weren't for blogs like this one, I wouldn't know Rupert still had a news channel.


I think it is great that Fox News has intentionally ignored Dr. Paul... No really -- I mean seriously does anyone believe at this point that he will NOT get double digits in both IA and NH?

Fox will look like what they are -- dishonest...


Let Fox feel it from the bottom up eg., email you local Toyota dealership and let them know you will not be considering a new Toyota because of Fox's exclusionary political practices. Dealership owners will contact Toyota HQ's directly...... Fox will feel it shortly thereafter.


It doesn't really matter to a large extent. The Ron Paul campaign isn't one of the media, it's one of the people. I doubt if, at any time since there was wide spread media in the home, there have been so many people taking part in publicizing a candidate. The knowledge that the greater establishment is against him just gives Ron Paul more integrity in the eyes of the populace, and the only numbers that count at all are the numbers voting in the primaries and caucuses. Now the next worry is preventing fraud with the voting records.


EITHER YOU ARE FOR RON PAUL or YOU ARE A CORPORATE MEDIA DUPE.

AMERICA FIRST
RON PAUL 08


Did you hear about Rupert Murdoch's reaction when he heard that Ron Paul supporters were selling their shares?

Ron Paul supporters: We're so mad we're gonna.....we're gonna.....we're gonna SELL ALL OUR NEWSCORP STOCK !!!!!!


Murdoch: Yawwwwwwn. Ho hum. I hope you make a few bucks. Oh, by the way, Ron Paul still aint invited. Cheers. Bye.
- - - - - -

If I were running the Ron Paul campaign I'd rent a local Red Roof Inn conference room, or a movie theater, and buy a hundred pizzas. Throw a free pizza party. Do it at the exact same time the "republicans" are having their closed forum. Dr Paul would be at the party to mingle and answer questions. See which event gets more action.

The whole thing would only cost two-three grand. He could pay for it out of his own pocket and not use campaign funds.


There are two ways to understand what happened on and since 9/11. The way the government and mainstream media tell us to understand it. And second, the actual way history will unfold.


Well what a surprise. To quote a wonderful holiday movie: "If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised!" (sarcasm ofcourse). Fox has blatantly and obviously outed itself as the tool of neocon policy. This is significant. It represents a real risk for Fox to show its true colors in such a straightforward manner. It means that the machine is really nervous about Dr. Paul and what he can do. It is similar to the blatant move by RedState.com a few months ago. Anybody who harbored doubts about how shaken the establishment is regarding Paul's success should now be free of such. I personally, would like to thank Fox for this move. Nothing will generate powerful publicity for Dr. Paul like this kind of obvious snub and; this will help tremendously to galvanize support for him in New Hampshire. I honestly think somebody in the Paul camp is reading Michael Deaver's play book.

A cautionary note to Democrats. Many on the left believe Dr. Paul can help them fracture the GOP in such a way that it guarantees a Hillary win in the general. This is a dangerous game for the left. If Paul is nominated, Hillary will be little more than an electoral afterthought. Write that down. Rememnber you have been warned.

The machinations and manipulations of power are only as successful and effective as the governed will allow. Ultimate power in politics is inevitably in the hands of the governed. Elites mourn the day that the governed make this realization.


I love Dr. Paul's attitude toward equality. You may not like someone else's point of view, but that's the beauty of America. We're able to talk to each other. I only worry when we're not allowed to talk rationally about something as devastating as War. Remember the dead and cherish the living.


Dear Disgusted,

Your post truly shows your ignorance. You stated that RP lacks, and I quote: "poise and charisma." Do you even know what those two words mean? The reason I ask is because those two adjectives describe Ron Pauls character to a tee; and this is based on his past political record and accomplishments not just from my "fly-by-night, seemingly uneducated opinion."
Let me give you a little help here: From Dictionary.com:
Poise = "a dignified self confident manner or bearing. How can you remotely say that RP has no poise when in reality he is a humble man who has never voted to raise his own Congressional paycheck, never voted to raise taxes, and doesn't take any "pac money" from lobbyists? Need more? He has never participated in the overinflated Congressional Pension plan and has voted repeatedly for a balanced budget. Out of all of the presidential candidates running for office, "poise" seems to be RP's strongest point... not his weakest. If you disagree, please state the "facts" that prove otherwise, not baseless opinions that you seemingly derived from FAUX newscasts!
And as far as "charisma" goes:
Charisma = "a spiritual power or personal quality that gives an individual influence over a large number of people"
In case you haven't heard, RP just raised the most money by any candidate in political history in the last quarter of this year. Maybe I need to repeat that: HELLO! RP RAISED THE MOST MONEY BY ANY CANDIDATE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER IN THE HISTORY OF POLITICS! And sorry, that's a fact, not my opinion. Does that really sound like a lack of "charisma" to you? Maybe you need to re-read the definition.

People, please do your own homework...don't base your half-hearted, half-cocked opinions on what you heard in the "Lamestream media" for your facts and your vote. Go to Independent news sources that are reader supported for unbiased information and make your own opinions based on what you believe is in the best interest of your family and this country!


FOX is the propaganda channel, and is hiding the truth.

LETS BOYCOT FOX CHANNEL. I WILL CALL MY CABLE/SATELLITE TO REMOVE MY FOX CHANNELS!


I sometimes wonder how Bush can ever sit down when so many Fox talking heads have their lips firmly planted on his behind. We need a third party to take back control of this country from corporate special interests. Bush has no brain, Republicans have no compassion, the Democrats have no spine- put them all together and you don't even come up with something human. It's more like Gollum.


Of course the White House Press Room Annex isn't going to invite the only honest Republican left in town.


Excellent video on the Fox News evil Empire

I am a registered Democrat living in Denver. The most important issue to me is getting out of Iraq, and has been since 2002. I support Ron Paul. If he isn't on the Republican ticket, I am voting for Obama. Basically, by snubbing Paul, Fox is encouraging me to vote Democrat.


I say good for Fox News. Ron Paul is at best a fringe candidate. It's about time to separate the wheat from the chaff.

And Ron Paul is all chaff. The time for wacky is over, let's get serious.

Ron Paul is a joke.


Mitt Romney supports FoxNews and their desicion to leave Ron Paul out of the debate. Mitt Romney needs to be exposed for the dirty politician he is


Speechless! How can we get the word out if not by media? I'm shocked Ron Paul campaign is not taking a more vocal effort in exploting this snub by using at least some cash in N.H. two days before. Please i'm losing faith. RP please start showing your strengths your known for.


Please...persons wanting to change the world for the better so their kids or kids of those they love can live freely vote Ron and stop the Democratic movement to literally control our lives and create a nation of robots that they control. For those who say Ron is a joke or a fringe candidate, I am saddened you you dont have the forsight and courage to help make a change - keep stagnating in our nations mess!


This is what happens when you have a neocon fascism so called democracy running the country the illusion of freedom
our only hope

ron paul 08


As a former Baltimorean, I am proud of you for being one of the very few newspapers giving Ron Paul fair coverage.

Keep up the great work! You've got another subscriber!


Say what you will about Fox News, but it is a news channel.

Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel and Alan Keyes should debate on the Cartoon Network.

Because that is where jokes belong, not on a news channel.


FOX ATTACKED!!!!!

By Paul - Supporters - And other media!!


Was the debate canceled three weeks ago? Yes.

Did the NH GOP deny there was a debate hosted by FOX on the 6th, that Ron Paul was not invited to? No. In fact they reasonably confirmed some event was taking place, and Ron Paul's status was unclear.

Web sites at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on the St. Anselm campus state FOX's Chris Wallace will interview the GOP Presidential candidates on that date at 8PM EST live in what appears to be a round table forum with or without an audience (unclear).

What is clear? Both the NH GOP and FOX News have had ample time, opportunity and frankly reason (melting phone lines and crashing servers) to forthrightly and rapidly respond in a "yes" or "no" manner. While the NH GOP has shed some light on things, on others they seem uncertain. Which continues to leave unanswered questions. But at least they are responding. The silent FOX News on the other hand still has one major series of questions I would like to know:

Will Chris Wallace or a proxy be conducting interviews of the GOP Presidential candidates on the 5th or 6th in NH, unrelated to the ABC debate on the 5th? From there will come other questions. I continue to suspect Mr. Wallace will host a closed round table for the "top five" candidates in an effort to boost their chances over Ron Paul 48 hours before the NH primary. I expect this forum to be taped for broadcast. But truthfully all you have are whiffs of what is going on, and lack of denial or explanation.

[Paranoid? Absolutely not. Just as Mr. Gravel and Mr. Kucinich. Just listen to the open mic exchange early on in the debates between Hillary and Edwards. Just remember Michigan, Iowa and South Carolina. Ron Paul is not liked by the establishment, the establishment GOP or the establishment media. There is a group in the media who love Ron Paul because he produces controversy and controversy sells. There is another group who despise Ron Paul because they are told to despise Ron Paul, and he is credibly threatening their gravy train access to your wallet.]


I sold my shares in FOX news too... and I'm also boycotting, them, their sponsors and telling everyone that will listen to do the same. To hell with faux news!


What a wonderful endorsement for Ron Paul to know that fox and the rest of these republican losers don't want him there, thank you for strengthening my opinion of Mr. Paul!! The g o p has no one else to offer of any substance or integrity!


Illegal Immigrent.....
Thanks for the enlighting forum. A whole new perspective.



Mr Thad Schiele --

As long as you're not registered in one of the states on the list below you can vote for Ron Paul in any case.

Since you live in Colorado everything is okay. You can vote for RP no matter what happens with the "official" repub nomination.

In most states (forty-two states) registered voters are permitted to "write-in" the name of whomever they please for President. Voters are not limited to voting for the official nominee of any party.

Listed below are the eight states that do Not permit write-in votes for President. All other states DO allow write-in votes.

Write-in votes NOT permitted in:

1.) Hawaii
2.) Louisiana
3.) Nebraska
4.) Nevada
5.) New Mexico
6.) Oklahoma
7.) South Carolina
8.) South Dakota

All registered voters please take note: As long as the state where you're registered is not on the above list, you can write-in whomever you please for President.

Ref:

http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/2000presgeresults.htm


It looks like the mainstream media is controlling who they want in the White House.

How nieve of me to think that there really is Freedom of the Press; or that certain TV stations are fair and balanced.


Why is this event not listed on the websites of either Fox News or the New Hampshire State Republican Committee? Both websites have calendars of events, but this is not included.

Why are there no official statements confirming or denying this "controversy" on either website?

I think these people are enjoying watching Ron Paul supporters run around like chickens with their heads cut off. This confirms for me that, whether or not this "debate" is occurring, Fox News has a sadistic streak.


Go, Ron Paul, Go! Don't let the bums stop you from participating in this debate!


Bank predicts Ron Paul win, US slump
Thu, 27 Dec 2007 06:08:48


Denmark-based Saxo Bank predicts Ron Paul presidency in 2008, saying US economy will plunge into a depression prior to the election.

The Bank predicted that Ron Paul, US congressman and Republican presidential candidate, will win the US 2008 presidential election.

Saxo Bank says the US economy will shrink by 25% and the Chinese economy will decrease by 40%. The economic downturn will come about as a result of the housing crash.

Ron Paul has been critical of the Federal Reserve and has blamed the Federal Reserve for causing the real estate bubble and crash. Paul has said that the loose monetary policy of the Fed had artificially inflated real estate prices which lead to the collapse.

Paul supports 'Sound Money' and opposes the Federal Reserve's 'Inflation Tax' and says that he wants to prevent a dollar collapse.

Saxo Bank also predicts $175 a barrel for oil and the price of grain will double. Some have predicted that oil will climb to $250 a barrel if the US attacks Iran. The bank also predicts that 30% of large building companies will go bankrupt.

The idea that the MSM is all compromised and corrupt is silly. The idea that parts of it are and are lackys to a continually growing corrupt system is not.

The way the neocons and war mongers and neolibs are ignoring Ron Paul should tell you something about him. If the criminals don't want him the people sure should.


Do you want to know why Fox News acts the way they do?

Then please go to:

video(dot)google(dot)com and type "Outfoxed"

It will become perfectly clear to why Fox News...

Danish bank predicts Ron Paul for US president

Posted by smash on December 31, 2007, 2:35:51

Although this is from an Iranian source this prediction is from this particular Scandinavian bank.

Denmark-based Saxo Bank predicts Ron Paul presidency in 2008, saying US economy will plunge into a depression prior to the election.

The Bank predicted that Ron Paul, US congressman and Republican presidential candidate, will win the US 2008 presidential election.

Saxo Bank says the US economy will shrink by 25% and the Chinese economy will decrease by 40%. The economic downturn will come about as a result of the housing crash.

Ron Paul has been critical of the Federal Reserve and has blamed the Federal Reserve for causing the real estate bubble and crash. Paul has said that the loose monetary policy of the Fed had artificially inflated real estate prices which lead to the collapse.

Paul supports 'Sound Money' and opposes the Federal Reserve's 'Inflation Tax' and says that he wants to prevent a dollar collapse.

Saxo Bank also predicts $175 a barrel for oil and the price of grain will double. Some have predicted that oil will climb to $250 a barrel if the US attacks Iran. The bank also predicts that 30% of large building companies will go bankrupt.

As a canadian Indian I am in full support of Ron Paul as someone in the Light.

May Ron Paul inspire the world to stand in their Light, the way he has shown by example.

Life brings us even more surprises.Click on my link to see what's been appearing in the canadian sky these days.....

Stay strong folks,

The agenda-ladden Fox propoganda machine will meets its match eventually.

Fox provides a disgusting disservice to our country by filtering our "news" and now, even the actual candidates. Shame on you!

Go Ron Paul in 08

Sincerely,

Now I know why Fox isn't calling this event a "debate"... If you exclude Ron Paul then there's no need for any of the candidates to actually debate since they all believe in doing the same exact thing once they become president: Take over the world, tax it, enslave it, and then maybe blow it up.


Go to hell, Faux News. 9-11 was an Inside Job. The war is unconstitutional along with the Federal Reserve. You won't win, you biased liars! RonPaul2008.com Hope for America! Patriots will rise up and silence the minions. Freedom will prevail. Ron Paul has a right to be heard. The tools of New World Order that you're displaying as choices in that garbage bin that's called a Faux News Forum is propagnada, on the same level as that orchestrated by the third reich. Your 4th reich will fail. The new world order will not succeed! Go Ron Paul! Free us all! we need borders! private property rights! rights to free speech! rights to be secure in our homes and our effects! We want our Constitution Back, Fox and we will have it!


Just want to show my support for Ron Paul. People like this guy - even friends and relatives of mine I can't convince to vote for him like him. They really outta put him on.


Hey! I just got a real inspiration! So, the "excluders" voted for war in Iraq. How many "major-media" readers or TV viewers have ever seen this report: "Extreme Birth Deformities." This is one of the most horrible results of use of depleted uranium (DU)in "their" war. Think of the awful shock to the innocent mothers!
Type that title in the internet and show that with the names of every candidate for President the results of "their war!"

Murdoch was a lousy Australian so it comes as no surprise that he makes a lousy American.

The good news is that this is now becoming common knowledge judging from the comments posted here. Fox excluding Ron Paul is now driving home just how horrid a neocon fascist Murdoch really is as he seeks to control the outcome of the US elections. The desperation is palpable in this blatant move to deny the lamestream of Ron Paul’s voice, but it’s a wild gamble that is not going to work because Americans are clearly waking up to the NWO agenda that traitor Rupert Murdoch answers to.

So everyone in support of freedom from the globalists’ big fascist government should take heart that this is clear evidence that the Ron Paul Revolution is gaining real traction and has these treacherous fascist schemers are running scared big time. Now even more people will awaken to the threat and seek to address it by supporting Ron Paul’s bid for presidency.

It would be true justice if this eventually results in the withdrawal of all media spectrum licenses from Murdoch’s propaganda empire and their reallocation to true journalists that take their public service obligation to report the news seriously and without undue bias.

The time for the MSM’s dominance of news reporting is ending now that it can be seen to continually out itself for the evil agenda it has been pushing worldwide.

Kudos to the Baltimore Sun for reporting on Fox here in this blog, I’ll be even more impressed if it makes the printed page for the benefit of those not online.


Ron Paul not being invited by Fox? At least Fox had the decency to appropriately replace the word "debate" with "forum." The only thing the others will debate is what corporations to subsidize and what countries to attack.

This former Democrat is voting Ron Paul.


what a bunch of scumbags!!!ron paul have raised more money in one day than any other candidate and online fox polls he wins all the time


I had been a loyal Foxnews viewer for a number of years. No more. I was thinking of buying a Toyota and not going to now. This is really ridiculous. Fox News people were laughing at Ron Paul when asking questions on the last 'debate' and tried to marginalize him on most of the Fox interviews. We will see who will be laughing when the votes are counted.

Go Ron Paul!!

A disillusioned Republican


Boycott? Give em' heck!

I've already emailed Fox News and I'm in the process of contacting their corporate sponsors to let them know I will be boycotting their products and services if Ron Paul is not invited to the forum.

I have always been a FOX viewer and defender however, their treatment of RP has really opend my eyes. Now, that they are opened, I wont be watching or supporting FOX in any fashion.


Boycott? Give em' heck!
Dr. Paul will just rent the Hall down the street and pack it in with supporters outnumbering Fox audience 10 to 1! I envision a sea of Dr. Paul's supporters surrounding the debate.


To Fox News, play fair. The whole world is watching. Invite Ron Paul to the N.H. debate.


It is odd that we cannot seem to get a straight story on whether or not there will be a debate on Jan. 6th hosted by Fox News in New Hampshire?

I am very encouraged after reading all the posts on this thread. Obviously the vast majority are pro-Ron Paul and those who are negative appear to be trolls.

Here is a great video I just found while cruising around online:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVtKLmoNNsw

I'm going to do some digging and see if I can find out the truth about what's going on. Debate or no debate? Excluded or not?


There is a debate on the 6th. Paul is NOT invited

ABC, Fox News cutting low-polling presidential candidates out of debates
The Associated Press
Published: December 31, 2007

ABC and Fox News Channel are narrowing the field of presidential candidates invited to debates this weekend just before the New Hampshire primary, in Fox's case infuriating supporters of Republican Ron Paul.

The roster of participants for ABC's back-to-back, prime-time Republican and Democratic debates Saturday in New Hampshire will be determined after results of Thursday's Iowa caucus become clear.

Fox, meanwhile, has invited five GOP candidates to a forum with Chris Wallace scheduled for its mobile studio in New Hampshire on Sunday. Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson received invites, leaving Paul and Duncan Hunter on the sidelines.

The network said it had limited space in its studio — a souped-up bus — and that it invited candidates who had received double-digit support in recent polls.

http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/12/31/arts/TV-Debate-Limits.php


I guess they can or could do the same for the election results as they do anything else. If Ron actually won they could just not report it. Who would know or believe otherwise?


I am Canadian and have taken great interest in observing the primary races, especially the Republican one. I wish I could vote in them because my vote would be for Ron Paul. What happens in America sets the tone for what transpires in Canada. We have a Bush clone by the name of Harper. We desperately need our own Ron Paul. Go Ron, the truth will prevail and your constitution will once again be respected. The great people we know as Americans will find their way again.


Shame on the Republican Committee of New Hampshire if it allows this Fox charade of excluding Ron Paul from the upcoming NH candidates’ forum/debate.

Indeed, any candidate who takes part in this attempt to control the American people’s right to freely elect their President betrays their Freedom of choice.

Candidates who accepts to participate if Ron Paul is excluded will prove themselves selfish, unprincipled, opportunistic, undemocratic and unworthy of our trust.


Contemplating the continued major media blackouts on Dr. Paul, I wonder what they truly fear? Perhaps they fear that if Dr. Paul was President, they (the press) would have to begin using their brains and reporting the truth, like journalists of the 60's - rather than puppet-speak what they are directed by heirarchy tri-lateral commissionists, council on foreign relations and other one-world order socialists. I guess that's enough to scare anybody, and why our press so limply nods their feeble heads in unison and ridicules such a decent, educated and moral citizen as Dr. Paul....they openly express their nervousness in these debates by marginalizing his questions and their sarcastic expressions. One need not be a psychologist, just read the body language! They have reason to fear the Rockefellers, J P Morgans and other world bank managers...they fear the loss of their jobs if they aren't good little puppets!


So what is the surprise here? We all know that Fox News sucks. Not inviting Dr. Paul is a plus for him as far as I am concerned. I would be surprised and let down if he chose to appear on a Fox sponsored "forum". Fox News is just another extension of the bush progaganda network.


I used to believe the press was free in the 1980's, and 1960's, and 1940's... but the reality is: it hasn't been free since December 1913, when the Federal Reserve Act was passed. They immediately started buying up the media. Even my 87 year old Grandmother, born in 1920, has never lived to see an honest newspaper article. From the first motion pictures, the first featuring audio, the first TV... they have had their filthy hands on everything. We must free ourselves of the Fed at all cost - if we ever wish to breathe a single breath of freedom in our whole existence. Finally a leader who shall slay the Beast! Ron Paul 2008!


FOX...their name itself suggests they are here to FOX people!
No wonder Dr Paul is being ignored.I am praying to God daily for victory of Dr.Paul...God if you are reading these blogs (which I believe you are...as you are everywhere..even on the net...)...Please grant this wish..make our Dr Paul the next US President...I will be indebted to you for next 1 million births.Amen.


If you aren't a member of the "Council on Foreign Relations" and ready to sell out US sovereignty FOX is not interested in hearing from you... Now beyond a shadow of a doubt we know where the Fox news channel loyalty resides...


Not watching Fox is not enough. Call your cable company and cancel that garbage and tell them why you did it. That's the only way to hit them so they'll feel it. TV's dead anyway. We've got YouTube!

I CHANGED THE LETTER A BIT , TOO AS FOLLOWS:


To Whom it May Concern:


I am writing to express my disappointment and displeasure upon discovering Dr. Ron Paul will be excluded from the New Hampshire Debates.


*

Dr. Paul has placed #1 among Republicans AND Democrats at AOL's spam-proof poll.
*

Dr. Paul LEADS ALL Republican candidates in fund raising this quarter.
*

Dr. Paul is tied for third place in IOWA.

*

Dr. Paul's support is known to be great among Independents, former Republicans and Democrats. Surely these people deserve to have their candidate heard!

*

Dr. Paul Is the MOST searched for candidate on the internet.


The exclusion of Dr. Paul from these debates would be for me the final convincing piece of evidence that we the American citizens are no longer in control of our destiny. Once the process to file FEDERAL complaints via the FCC is automated, you may expect a flood of letters to your affiliate stations stating FOX affiliates are NOT acting in the public interest. i am,


very serious,

IN THE SUBJECT BOX I WROTE AS FOLLOWS:Regarding Fox New's manipulation of America's Presidential Election

PLEASE PLEASE SEND THIS AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO SEND IT ALSO.


WOW I hope Fox keeps dis'ing RP because look at all the dialogue that comes gushing out of the nooks and crannies of our country.

Posted by: Illegal Immigrant | December 31, 2007 10:37 AM

You are a very articulate, well-educated, astute individual and I thank you for your perspective. You also write, spell and have better syntax than most the 'legal' posters here (me included). Hope you will join the process here and in your native land. Thanks and good luck.


Ron Paul has some very "interesting" friends:

http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=28353_Ron_Pauls_Photo-Op_with_Stormfront&only

Yes, that is a photo-op with the proprietors of #1 white supremacist website Stormfront (no link to that cesspool).

"Take the measure of a man by the company he keeps."


I am not surprised at FOX News attempt at excluding Ron Paul from the debate. Ron Paul views of abolishing the Federal Reserve Bank strikes at the heart of the monopolist whom have gained ownership of many corporations in America, and FOX News is just one of many. I do on occasion turn the channel to FOX News when I need to be reminded how bias and owned FOX news is. I do support of Ron Paul appearing on the show but FOX News has its own bosses to answer to.

I am not a ron paul supporter,but I believe that the media should allow all viable candidates an equal opportunity to express their positions.


How about "Media Whore 2008"
Pick your warmonger, CFR elite controlled talking head zombie sold out anti-American traitor forum?


"The global establishment" has an agenda for the USA that does not include liberty and freedom. When you receive you issued ID card and the chip under your skin you will have wished you had voted for liberty, freedom and Ron Paul.


Ron Paul is the only serious anti-establishment candidate. His success is phenominal and spells danger for the estanblishment.

Only the establishment favorites get real media-time (4x republicans and 2x Democrats).It´s a shame that even here in Europe, he is virtually ignored by the media.

Eventhough I´m a registered democrat, I will be voting for Ron Paul in 2008.


Fox News is scared, I'm not sure why, but they are. And it seems like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are as well. There is an opportunity for the New World Order to be overturned and for sovereignty to be given back into the hands of the people. I think that much of what Ron Paul stands for is the truth. Fox News should be scared not to allow Ron Paul in the debates. For some reason, the truth always stands in the end. It may be a thousand years from now, but at the end the truth will be standing on top of all the lies that tried to usurp it. If Fox News tries to hide the truth, it will fall, especially as a news organization, and one whose slogan is 'fair and balanced.' Fox News should include Ron Paul in there debates.

I believe the Bible. In it Jesus says, "the truth will set you free". The Truth will triumph.


FOX (FIX) News has exposed itself and their agenda thru their actions. They define the term propaganda.

I stopped watching FOX News several years ago and I urge all of you to write to FOX NEWS sponsors and tell them you will not buy their products!

Your power is in your pocketbook!


There is just no reason as to why Ron Paul should not be invited. Why are they so scared to give him an invitation? Apparently the truth hurts and Fox can't handle it.

Ron Paul IS the Hope for America.


Of course Fox doesn't want anyone that will make Guiliani look bad on their network. After all, if it wasn't for Guiliana there would be no Fox. Read about it - http://www.gambling911.com/Ron-Paul-010108.html


Here's a few Will Rogers Comments:
" You can Diplomat America out of Almost everything she has, but don't try to Bluff her"

" A noisy vote don't do any more than a Quiet one does."
I have a real gut feeling that the Quiet Undecided voters in Iowa will bring Ron Paul to the Top of Heap!! Get out vote for this Man.


It is the message of liberty and freedom the msm and global economist are scared of not the man. The revolution has begun and they know it. Even if Ron Paul is not elected, the revolution is on. Too many quarterbacks have picked up the ball and they can't be stopped. Illegal war in Iraq, federal reserve stealing our money, illegals sucking us dry, and wasteful spending of our tax money have set the course for this revolution. This can't be stomped out unless they bring out martial law and start rounding us up to be put in their prisoner camps they have over the United States. Help the fight to take America back from the crooks, liars and thieves that have a different agenda for her. They want global control.


Who is the person who called Ron Paul a racist? This is disinformation. Nothing could be further from the truth. The New Hampshire GOP and Fox News should be ashamed of themselves. If they don't reverse this decision, I will never watch Fox again. And Ron Paul is anything but a "nut case." The nut cases are the frauds who think they can get away with this. Is this America or Zimbabwe? If folks in New Hampshire really believe in their motto, "Live free or die," they will all vote for Dr.Ron Paul. "The doctor is in!"


RP opposes sending billions of US aid dollars to Israel, Egypt and elsewhere, especially since we are deeply indebted as a nation.

But the supporters of such aid enjoy having the retail clerical workers of America, etc. pay higher taxes so that the infusion will continue. They like it so much that they'd do about anything to ensure it continues and that Paul isn’t elected. They might even manipulate the debates if they had the power.


Dear "Disgusted"- to put it bluntly...it is disgusting that you think the true qualifications of a president are "poise and charisma" - those qualities (although admirable, and possessed by Dr. Paul) are not what make a nations leader great - it is what keeps the mess we have created going - people, wake up - we need a person who truly wants to change our country for the better - to bring us back to what our founding fathers wanted - LIMITED GOVT - not a Hillary govt that will only be happy when every dollar of the middle class has been taken by the govt and redistributed to those who dont want to work and contribute - for all of you who believe in entitlement and need the govt to run every aspect of your life then by all means keep voting for the one with the most charisma and poise - for the ones who have been born and raised into politics and use our nation as a means to their ends, for those who want a true change for the better -to actually create a true democracy, to try to get our nation back and stop the ridiculous mess called Washington then vote for the smart, sane, person dedicated to helping our nation not just his own self - vote ron.


Melissa was right about her comment way up at the top of the page. News Corp stock is taking a beating as the boycott gains supporters and momentum. Stock prices were down nearly 3% today, a bit lower than competitors in the media industry.


let em know what you think by using your spending power to send them a message. proceeded by a phone call will be most effective.

Contact Saint Anselm College, where Fox will hold the forum, and ask how they can allow Fox on their campus. Fox's decision goes against every ideal the College stands for!

We the people made Fox, we the people will take down Fox!! its sad because I am in the entertainment industry and always thought the head of Fox was just an idiot..but now I think they are what JFK was talking about in his speech that got him killed. Let not history repeat itself. I am a American that stands for every single thing that our forefathers/mothers died for...and our U.S. solders are fighting for..and that is freedom for all (Worldpeace!!), but America needs our men/women home now...Bring em home Ron!!

god bless you..


I stopped passing out "One Finger" awards along time ago, but I have to admit that Fox News has without question won (hands down) the "Ultimate-One Finger Award" of all time... Fox News has secured their placed in the "ANNAL BOOK of RECORDS".


i think it is great that a person like Dr. Paul is speaking out to inform the people of how America is in need to return to its roots in order to fix her problems. i have been in support of him since before he started mainstream running for presidential race. i was mentioning his name and people said "who? never heard of him". now people say "oh yeah , Ron Paul." People are actually listening to him whether they like him or not and that is so great. at least it will weigh on their mind of the issues that are at hand for this wonderful country. i think this act by FOX just goes to show how corrupt the media and the government is to only show the people what they want you to see and know. kinda like the new T V broadcasting for 2009 where they are making the people buy digital boxes. Dr. Paul has definitely got the candidates attention that he has supporters, cause it is funny how some of them have taken his views for their own benefit to gain support. i really pray that Dr. Ron Paul will be on the final ballot in Nov. so i can fill in my bubble on my card. so lets continue to voice ourselves out there. DR. RON PAUL FOR 2008.


Ron Paul is the only one who will stand up to fight for our freedoms. Enlighten everyone and pass this along. http://www.libertyforlife.com/banking/federal_reserve_bank.html
